About the instructor

Jun Miranda started his career in photography as a serious amateur photographer-member of the prestigious Camera Club of the Philippines in 1985. To deepen his understanding and develop his craft, he took up Basic Black & White Photography and Studio Photography in 1995 at the Maine Photographic Workshop (now, Maine Media Workshops College) in Maine, USA. In 2017 he got his accreditation as a Test NCII Photographer.

Jun Miranda is a pioneer in digital imaging. He has been using Adobe Photoshop since version 2 when he established PixelMagic, Inc., an imaging studio and service bureau in 1994. PixelMagic was one of first imaging studios in the country and continues to service selected clients to this date.

He augmented his experience in digital imaging and printing by studying at the United Digital Artists in New York, USA in 1995 and the Kodak Center for Creative Imaging in Maine, USA, in 1996. From 1993-2005 he has attended dozens of seminars on the Photoshop and Lightroom at such venues in the Hong Kong and the US as the MacWorld’s MacAcademy and Pro Conference Sessions and at the Photoshop World sponsored by National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP).

In 2000, he became the first an Adobe Certified Expert and Adobe Certified Instructor in Adobe Photoshop and in 2008, in Adobe Lightroom in Asia.
